“And now I was lonelier, I supposed than anyone else in the world. Even Defoe’s creation, Robinson Crusoe, the prototype of the ideal solitary, could hope to meet another human being. Crusoe cheered himself by thinking that such a thing could happen any day, and it kept him going. But if any of the people now around me came near I would need to run for it and hide in mortal terror. I had to be alone, entirely alone, if I wanted to live.”
―  The Pianist: The Extraordinary Story of One Man’s Survival in Warsaw, 1939–45

“The life of a human being, let alone his personal freedom, is a matter of no importance. But the love of freedom is native to every human being and every nation, and cannot be suppressed in the long term. History teaches us that tyranny has never endured. And now we have blood guilt on our conscience for the dreadful injustice of murdering the Jewish inhabitants.”
―  The Pianist

“They gave no alms; in their view charity simply demoralized people. If you worked as hard as they did then you would earn as much too: it was open to everyone to do so, and if you didn’t know how to get on in life that was your own fault.”

“Lying is the worst of all evils. Everything else that is diabolical comes from it.” ~~~ The Pianist Movie Quotes 


The Best Pianist Quotes

“That evening it was announced that curfew would be postponed until midnight so that the families of those ‘sent for labor’ would have time to bring them blankets, a change of underwear and food for the journey. This ‘magnanimity’ on the part of the Germans was truly touching, and the Jewish police made much of it in an effort to win our confidence. Not until much later did I learn that a thousand men rounded up in the ghetto had been taken straight to the camp at Treblinka so that the Germans could test the efficiency of the newly built gas chambers and crematorium furnaces.” ~~~ The Pianist Movie Quotes 

“I sometimes give recitals in the building at number 8 Narbutt Street in Warsaw where I carried bricks and lime – where the Jewish brigade worked: the men who were shot once the flats for German officers were finished. The officers did not enjoy their fine new homes for long. The building still stands, and there is a school in it now. I play to Polish children who do not know how much human suffering and mortal fear once passed through their sunny schoolrooms. I pray they may never learn what such fear and suffering are.” ~~~ The Pianist Movie Quotes 

“war. There was now no point in a war that might once have been justified as a search for free subsistence and living space – it had degenerated into vast, inhuman mass slaughter, negating all cultural values, and it can never be justified to the German people; it will be utterly condemned by the nation as a whole. All the torturing of Poles under arrest, the shooting of prisoners of war and their bestial treatment – that can never be justified either.” ~~~ The Pianist Movie Quotes 

“Street traders were doing good business selling a paper toy which represented a pig, but if you put the paper together and unfolded it in a certain way it turned into Hitler’s face.” ~~~ The Pianist Movie Quotes

The Pianist Quotes Piano

“The workers went along with the Nazis, the Church stood by and watched, the middle classes were too cowardly to do anything, and so were the leading intellectuals. We allowed the unions to be abolished, the various religious denominations to be suppressed, there was no freedom of speech in the press or on the radio. Finally we let ourselves be driven into war. We were content for Germany to do without democratic representation and put up with pseudo-representation by people with no real say in anything. Ideals can’t be betrayed with impunity, and now we must all take the consequences.” ~~~ The Pianist Movie Quotes 

“Humanity seems doomed to do more evil than good. The greatest ideal on earth is human love.” ~~~ The Pianist Movie Quotes 

“Why did this war have to happen at all? Because humanity had to be shown where its godlessness was taking it.” ~~~ The Pianist Movie Quotes 

“Every war casts up certain small groups among ethnic populations: minorities too cowardly to fight openly, too insignificant to play any independent political part, but despicable enough to act as paid executioners to one of the fighting powers. In this war, those people were the Ukrainian and Lithuanian Fascists.” ~~~ The Pianist Movie Quotes 

“We know the story of the Deluge from the Holy Scripture. Why did the first race of men come to such a tragic end? Because they had abandoned God and must die, guilty and innocent alike. They had only themselves to blame for their punishment. And it is the same today.” ~~~ The Pianist Movie Quotes
